Summer Nights concert for Stratford

Stratford district is set to celebrate the tenth year of the popular free community events fondly known as Summer Nights.

The public is invited to help celebrate Summer Nights’ tenth birthday with a weekend of music and movies.

The Summer Nights Concert will be on Saturday January 18 2020, and kicks off at 2.30pm with Just Us, followed by Trip Change at 3.45pm and then The Slacks at 5pm.

Trip Change

The Summer Nights Movies will be on the next day, Sunday January 19 2020, starting from noon. Choose from three films including, The Greatest Showman (PG), Toy Story 4 (G) and Bumblebee (PG-13), or settle in for a full day of watching all three.

Director of community services Kate Whareaitu says ten years is a special milestone.

“We can’t thank the community enough for getting behind this event and giving us the opportunity to make it happen every summer,” she says.

The Slacks

“We are thrilled to have local Taranaki musicians help us celebrate in 2020, with The Slacks headlining our concert on Saturday evening, with support from Trip Change and Just Us. The talented Dance Project team will be entertaining the crowd in between sets.

“Take some time out on the Sunday to chill in front of the big screen. With three films to choose from, there is something for the whole family to enjoy.”

Both events are sponsored by TSB Community Trust and will be held at the Ted McCullough Rhododendron Dell in King Edward Park, Stratford. Food and drinks will be available to purchase at both events, and people are welcome to bring their own picnic.
